Default Tell about your PT Cruiser birthday presents

SOOO BIG and I got a nice birthday present today. An ArmorAll Complete Car Car Kit. It comes with the ArmorAll Original Protectant, Glass Wipes, Ultra Shine Wash & Wax and Tire Foam Protectant.


There's a neat side story as to how I came by this ArmorAll Complete Car Car Kit.
My friend Gene invited me to breakfast to celebrate my birthday. We decided to go to a nice I-Hop in Deland. It's a decent drive over on St 92, International Speedway. A straight run for over 20 miles from then Atlantic Ocean to Deland. I knew additionally the invite involved a ride over to the Deland Kia Dealership this morning as he'd; "Won an ATV with a perfect match to all three numbers" on a flier he'd received. We knew it was just a come on the get him in the dealership but we thought we'd play along.
When we got there we were welcomed with open arms. We were taken to a salesman's office and spieled as we'd expected. But when it seemed he wasn't going to be interested in a new Kia suddenly there was any promised ATV, nor even a $10 gift card. Not even a spin of the wheel! No more welcome. Apparently they'd run out of the afore mentioned gift card that we at least expected as consolation prize! Well as originally planed we were just there to ride it out.
To get back in there good graces, Gene had his Town and Country looked over for appraisal and the salesman began salivating again. When that led nowhere, Gene got the snub again. I headed back inside for a reading on the "no prize!"
I first checked with the receptionist but was stonewalled. I went to the salesman and was stonewalled again. I then went to the sales manager and expressed our disappointment in the llooonnnnggggg expectant drive without any "prize" and the fact that my friend Gene is 89 going on 90 and had driven over with all his expectations. Where was his ATV???? And I'd just turned 78 that day. We were very disappointed! I was really nursing it. To shut me up and get us out of the dealership the sales manager gave me this kit for Gene's efforts. In addition to a nice birthday card and breakfast, after the fact, Gene presented me with the ArmorAll Complete Car Car Kit.

I'm thinkin' every once in a while a PTer might get a nice PT Cruiser birthday present and can post it on this thread. Happy Ptin', ptprice

I use the Armour All Car Care Kit, the same except no Tire Foam, and it's great!
